07-28-2012 09:17 PM Rocker / Body Back on Chassis
109 today. Brutal.

Hit it early and got the RF rocker seam leaded and smoothed. Happy with the results but I am too slow. Hopefully with what I have learned the drip rail areas will go quicker. Time will tell.

There was a bunch of weld boogers on the right front body mount. Not sure what the PO was doing. It got cleaned up. I also welded a small hole shut on the right toe board.

My 41 funny car! The body went back on the chassis today. For the most part, I have figured out how to get it back on. There are a few rough spots I have to iron out before there is primer and/or paint involved.

The long bolts that go in the front mounts are missing. Not sure if the kit was short or if I misplaced them. I bought the bolt kit a lot of years ago. I will have to get some replacements tomorrow.

07-21-2012

So, my first attempt at leading. On one hand, I am dreadfully slow. I spent 8 hours in the heat doing the front and back seams on the left rocker. On the other hand, I am pleased with the results.

A repeat of the previous post's tinned photo and a finished LR seam shows the work. The LF was done as well today. A final shot shows the view down the side.

The only way I could be happier about this is if I were a lot quicker at it.

07-27-2012 06:39 AM Floor and Rocker
07-17-2012

Another example of diminishing returns. The area "de-rusted" in the photos from the 17th show good results, but this took hours. Since the heat is on and apparently here to stay, squirting paint will be months from now. I decided to stop working on the floor, rearrange the schedule (yes, I do have one - I am just way behind!), and do the rockers, doors, and trunk lid.

The left rear seam of the rocker was cleaned and tinned. Ready for lead.
